Everyone thinks slightly differently. What works for you would leave someone else scratching their heads. For those people who naturally excel on stem programs (chemistry, physics, biology, etc) often have a very tough time with artistic based programs (writing, music, drawing, etc) and vise versa. The process you described for your table example honestly made my head hurt. I admire what you’re trying to write, but I feel like you could have come at it from a different angle.
